SS Challenge week 7

For the past week's scraplift challenge we used a page by Kim Watson. I just love seeing everyone's work at the end of the week. This week was no exception. I was pleasantly surprised with results. It is actually so much more fun to work on the same assignment with friends and to inspire each other.

For my page I wanted to use 4 pictures instead of two and as I was drawing a sketch, I thought it looked a little too familiar and I found a page I made before that reminded me of this lo:

That's when I changed my plans and decided to make an 8.5x11 page with two pictures instead. My baby was dressed in a little mismatched colors here. I turned pictures black and white and that gave me a total freedom with color choices.:


Each time I make a page in this format I realize how much I like it, but what's even better is that I always have a choice!

Lora's page has a lot of details. I like how she replaced one of the photos with journaling block. Ruffled ribbon just adds something totally special to the page. Even though she said it was far from her true style, I think it turned out pretty good. Here is Lora's page:

And as soon as I saw this page, it made me smile. This page is so happy. Very cute pictures and little details like bracket or that clip make it so fun. Anka was laughing about pink on boy's page but it totally works here. I love that there's no rules in scrapbooking!

Great job girls! For our next challenge check previous post. I have to start working on that one. Hope you have a great week!

  1. I totally agree with Anya about Lora's page. I think that it turned out really good, even though, Lora said that it's far from her style. I found it to be closer to my style, I loooveee ribbon especially when it's twisted the way she did it. I really liked your page too, Anya, because I love flowers and circles, and the colors you chose look awesome.

  2. Thank you so much! I just realized that I never used ribbon on a page (I used it on cards before)... You both inspire me to try something different and just be creative. :)

  4. Loved everyone's pages! Recently I have been loving to experiment with different styles, sooo, you'll probably be seeing more of this type of layouts :)
    Anya-love how all the little details bring the whole layout together. The black and white pictures just add a different feel :) I should try doing an 8.5x11 page.
    Anka - really like the color combination. It does make it look so happy and perky :) And your note there rhymes :)

    Anyway nice pages again everyone!
    Lora your journaling about Denis is so nice. If you write so nice about your little brother in law, I can only imagine what an amazing journaling might be about your kids.

  14. You don't have to wait too long, on Sunday feel free laughing at my DD. See Lora gave me a good idea, she said that could be just my style. So if you find on my DD some unfinished pages, no journaling, uneven glued photos and some other mistakes, all I got to say "It is just my style" :-)

  15. That's so funny! That's very unique style! lol

  16. Whenever you all girls abbreviate December Daily as DD, it really reminds me of that movie, Dumb and Dummer! lol

  18. Oh my :) I'll just stick to commenting about Anya's pages :) hehe, jk Anka, Marusya is just lowering our expectation so much, so that when we do see her DD, we'll be like 'oh, this is not bad!' :D And please, don't destroy your girls' dresses, they have stores like Jo-ann and Michaels (and many others) where they sell ribbon :P

    ОтветитьУдалить
  19. Yes that is good idea Jo-Ann and Michaels, always good suggestions from Lora. Thank you again! And why couldn't I think of it on my own :-(
